In the 70s, a German forest ranger made an interesting discovery – caught in an avalanche, he owed his survival to the game he was carrying on his shoulders, since the latter allowed him to remain on the surface of the snow. Experiments with voluminous canisters and balloons followed. The idea for the avalanche airbag was born. ABS is now celebrating 30 years of research and innovation. With 50,000 systems produced this season, ABS® remains the market leader in this sector.
